NSRA targets update 14-11-2018

Good afternoon,

Here is an update on the current position with Winter Competitions and Targets.  I appreciate how frustrating the lack of communication can be, but we wanted to be sure we could provide accurate information.

All NSRA targets are being investigated and we are dealing with them in priority order. Starting with the 2510 B.M./89 target that highlighted the problem, we’ve been working hard with Sykes to correct their printing issues for this and other targets.

The following targets have been proofed, quality checked and signed off for printing this week and will soon be available in the NSRA Shop:
PL14/06 – 18
2510 B.M./89 – 18
Air 4/89 – 18
MM 12 C 1996 – 18
It must be noted that the “-18” suffix added to all new printed target codes indicates a quality controlled target and can be assured it is up to specification and suitable for National Competition.

All other targets are being put through a similar stringent Quality Control Investigation and new proof targets checked before printing resumes.

Current Targets
The following targets not up to the full specification, however the scoring is not effected and so CAN BE USED for competition purposes:
MM 12 C 1996
1001C 1996
1003 B.M./89
Air 4/89
2510 B.M./89 (either purchased after 20th September 2018 or exchanged)

The following targets are NOT ACCEPTABLE to use for competition purposes:
PL14/06
Air 2/89
Air 3/89
2510 B.M./89 (purchased pre September 20th 2018)
2010 B.M./89
M.M. 13/89
2510 BR15
2010 BR17
Other targets are still to be investigated and proofed.

Competition Timings
It is my intention that the main Winter Season Short Range Competitions paperwork and stickers should be posted by the end of this week.  Other Competitions will follow relative to the target proofs being finalised.

Every League Competition will have an extension granted for Rounds 1 to 5 to be shot by the Round 5 date (Jan 7th 2019 for Club & Individual Leagues, Jan 14th for County Leagues).  We will of course address any further problems and/or delays by granting extensions following our normal guidelines on a case by case basis

Hopefully this will give an indication of the current position and the timescale for our Winter Season. Also it should provide sufficient time for you to procure the new “-18” targets if required as they are produced.

Thank you for your patience in this matter. I appreciate that this will have a knock on effect in timing for other competitions but competing in a fair manner on equivalent targets is the main priority. Other information will be made available on the NSRA website.

Kind regards,
Sandra
